Recipes for the Passionate Cook is the subtitle of this book, and Wolfert isn’t kidding. Still, if you haven’t time to make any of these recipes (and for Wolfert, Slow-Roasted Stuffed Tomatoes, at around 4 hours, is knocking together a quick dinner), just sit down and read them: Wolfert is the antidote to dinner in a dash, fast food, microwave meals and all other such grim modern methods of saving time eating. (For what? What could possibly be more important than dinner?) Her Pork and Orange-Flavoured Beans are one of the tastiest dishes I’ve ever made; they’re even better reheated she says, or in other words, an extra day is an advantage.
